MAC’s vapour, brule, dazzlight, or universal mix pigment from All races collection!! all are so great!

If I had Femme-fi…that would be it. To replicate it, I top Gesso with Retrospeck, as Retrospeck has Femme-fi’s multidimensional shimmer, but is actually darker than my skin tone!

Ricepaper hands down!!!!!! I recently bought Naked Lunch and Shroom but I still reach for Ricepaper. It just looks amazing on tan skin πŸ˜€

For all bright colors I prefer Electra frm mac and for all bronzie, browns & gold eyeshadows def femmi fi (limited ed) frm MAC also, temptalia’s fave! πŸ™‚

Love this question! Always on the lookout for a fantastic brow highlighter. At the moment, I’m using MAC’s Vanilla pigment.

shu uemura eye light pencil. Comes with two ends, matte and pearl. While the pearl one is great for inner eye corner and waterline, the matte one works perfectly on eyebrows.

MAC Vanilla or Blanc type, with a little bit of Shroom patted on top, the combo provides a nice sheen without too much shimmer.

A nice really matte highlighter is from MUD (makeup designory) called Lemon Cream Highlight (you can see it here! http://shop.mudshop.com/cheek-color)

It’s sold with the blushes, but I use it for everything on the face that needs a matte highlight with no shimmer – under eyes, brow bone, to contour… you get the idea!

Benefit’s EyeBright! Doubles as an eye brightener and brow bone highlighter. I haven’t tried their actual brow highlighter pencil (highBrow, I think) because I already had eyeBright and find that it works great for the brow πŸ™‚

I love Christopher Drummond Pele. I buy the try me pots and use on brow and top of cheek bones. Amazing product, not too shiny suits any skin tone.

White wheat from the Inventive Eyes Quad from the Naturally Eccentric collection 2005. I use it sparingly because I have never found a dupe and this and twillery from the quad are AMAZING. I wish MAC would repromote

Mylar, but everyone else seems to think it’s too chalky πŸ™ I was at a CCO looking for it the other day but they didn’t have it so I got chamomile, finding it a bit yellow for my nc15 – nw20 (summer) skin at the moment. Perhaps a few more days in the sun and it’ll work better. πŸ™‚ xxx

Too Faced Glamorous Life – now Disc – from the Coutur collection, pale yellow gold with an awesome texture like a veluxe pearle. I think I have still have one more spare! This is actually the only Too Faced shadow I wear.

Shroom or whatever the permanent equivalent of Creme Royale is, I can’t think of the name right now…

If I’m wearing eye makeup, then MAC Shore Leave. If I’m not wearing much makeup and just want something to help my eyebrows look great, then Benefit High Beam.

I like Brule for a very subtle highlight, but if I want something more dramatic, I go for Missy from the Sephora Kat Von D True Love palette, which is a white with subtle purple pearl.

I usually reach for a matte highlight and I found that the perfect one is beige from sallygirl brand eyeshadow. Its only one dollar and its smooth and blends out colors lovely. I recommend it to everyone. Its sold at Sally Beauty Supply.

Bare Minerals (Bare Escentuals) Vanilla Sugar or MAC Blanc Type (depending if I want a sheen or want it matte)

creme de miel………. i must find some more.. hopefully they have some when I go to the CCO in 3 weeks..

I haven’t found one I really like yet. I would love to try femme-fi, has anyone heard if Mac is going to re-promote it in any of their up coming collections?

I have one from ELF that I like it’s like a light shimmery neutral color but I can’t remember what its called…

MAC Ricepaper is a no-brainer/mistake-proof for me.
MAC Vanilla when I need something more matte.

For me, it depends on what I’m wearing on my eyes, but my favourites are all MAC eyeshadows: Nanogold, Phloof, Vanilla, Brule, Orb, Rice Paper, Shroom and Nylon.

For daily looks I go to MAC Ricepaper…for weekend ‘street walker’ ha! looks I go to MAC Vanilla.
